Dipping Into The New Releases

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

The stacks of new releases continue to grow unabated and for this program I pluck a few of the choice albums off the top of a few stacks. After our opener, the first set is one for “The Big Screen” of movies and Broadway. Then there’s a set of singer-songwriter material including two pieces from the first John Gorka solo album in four years.

For the program’s second half, Ana Alcaide of Spain is a discovery and revelation for me. She’s immensely popular in Europe and often near the top of the world music charts. Arc Records recently released the latest album she’s produced and is now releasing one of her earlier albums. Her music is simply ethereal.

The night closed with tasty old-time music from Canada’s Hannah Shira Naiman, award winning fiddler Vi Wickam and The Haints.
